Savage Sellout – Dice Roll

For those who like The Libertines, The Kooks and Catfish & the Bottlemen.

This new indie band are definitely ones to watch out for, with their new single “Dice Roll” dropping 22nd February – it’s been on repeat for myself for past few days. The 4-piece from Burton upon Trent started when two mates, and founding members, Ben and George, were jamming and writing parody songs, then in 2018 drummer Ella and bassist Tommy joined forming Savage Sellout. And 2019 is looking promising with numerous gigs lined up…

A quirky guitar riff starts this track with the singer giving anecdotes on life with gambling references, easy and simple yet smart lyrics are accompanied with a bass line that really rocks. The melodic drums constantly make ya bop ya head. As the song comes to its end it gets more aggressive and powerful leading to the fade of drums and a final guitar segment as the lead singer finishes with “jokes on you”. Perfect way to end this short, quirky, indie track.

If you haven’t already, look them up, Hopefully 2019 brings some more tunes from these Midlands rockers.
